Talk about throwing out political red meat. Congresswoman and gun rights activist Lauren Boebert (R- CO) tweeted out an image of a steak on Tuesday, taunting Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates to “come and take it,” in response to his call for widespread adoption of lab-created beef. But the rib steak image she so proudly tweeted out with the popular, Second Amendment catchphrase wasn’t actually from her kitchen, but was instead scraped from elsewhere on the Internet.
You don’t even have it to be taken away. You stole this image from a New York butcher’s website. https://t.co/PDt0ey0mLh

Flashing meat… this is sorta like your husband, when he was arrested for flashing his wiener to underage girls.

You wouldn’t think it possible. Wouldn’t it be fun to see her in a debate? pic.twitter.com/dFBFwb7MZS
